The Choice Lab papers launched at the University of Chicago

The Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Global Working Group (HCEO) announced two papers from The Choice Lab in their working papers series.

The Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Global Working Group (HCEO) at the University of Chicago, headed by Nobel laureate James J. Heckman, is a collaboration of over 400 researchers, educators and policy makers focused on human capital development and its impact on opportunity inequality.

Bertil Tungodden is a member of HCEO’s Inequality: Measurement, Interpretation, and Policy Network, which seeks to enhance the development of the theory and application of policy evaluation for those policies, designed to reduce inequality and boost individual flourishing. Further, this network seeks to enrich theoretical and empirical research by identifying dimensions of analysis that are particularly policy-relevant.

In January, HCEO announced the following The Choice Lab papers in their working paper series:

"The Effect of Early Education on Social Preferences" by Alexander Cappelen, John List, Anya Samek and Bertil Tungodden.

"Cutthroat capitalism versus cuddly socialism: Are Americans more meritocratic and efficiency-seeking than Scandinavians?" by Ingvild Almås, Alexander Cappelen and Bertil Tungodden.
